Ah, the age-old question of how to keep the spark alive in a relationship. I’m by no means a credentialed relationship expert, but I can tell you that in my four years of being with my partner, we’ve done a pretty good job at maintaining that love momentum. Sure, there are times when we simply enjoy the quiet familiarity of each other, and even times when we quarrel or get frustrated with each other, but we also make a serious effort to keep the fire we have for each other burning. And while four years isn’t very long in the grand scheme of the life we plan on sharing together, it is long enough to leave the honeymoon phase and enter real life together. And so far, that real life has been pretty amazing. Here’s how we do it, and why I feel confident the sparks will keep flying as time goes on.
